BOSTON (WHDH) - Hundreds of people braved the cold in South Boston and ran into frigid cold ocean water—for a good cause. The annual “Shamrock Splash” raises money for the city’s beach programs.
About 250 people ditched the winter jacket and grabbed a bathing suit on a cold Sunday morning for the event.
The crazy, cold idea raised more than $50,000.
The money will be used to create free beach events and programs for families this summer.
